Sibling Tips

Sibling Tips


>> Today it's short and sweet I'm afraid as I'm backed up with work but when it's as sweet as this unexpected collaboration between Fashionary and knitwear label Sibling, that does useful things other than look great, then it deserves some peeping attention.  Fashionary is basically a moleskin notepad with fashion design chutzpah and fiendishly useful information that journos, students or anyone who's a budding seamstress or dressmakerwill appreciate.  



Sibling condenses their knitting knowledge into a useful little black book that comes in this special Fashionary x Sibling set that will please any knitwear fiends out there from amateur to professional.   They've also lent their signature leopard print to the cover of the Fashionary as well as a knitted iPad case that also doubles up as a small clutch or huge cosmetics bag depending on how big of a product junkie you are.  I'm definitely using it as a clutch seeing as I'm STILL iPad-less.  Stone me now for not kowtowing to all things Apple.  You can buy it from 39-39's online shop or in their new physical store on Kingsland Road, which I still need to go and check out as they have all sorts of Christmas-appropriate nifty gifty things.   




I may as well take this opportunity to flag up the lovely addition of Sister by Sibling which was unveiled at S/S 12.  Women stealing Sibling's supposedly mens-only knitwear has been a well-established practise so they've made the very easy transition to womenswear by making items such as knitted biker short-shorts and shrinking the sizes down to being more girl-friendly.  The video above co-directed by illustrator Yuko Kondo (who also contributed some tattoo prints to the collection) and Jasi Urb gives you a rough idea of the fairground theme at hand.  The theme 'hot dog' conjures up Brighton and Coney Island which by means on nostalgia alone, men and women should be well and truly slayed by the references to helter skelter rides, candy floss (or cotton candy…) and carousels.

    a knit leopard print like the above would be the solution to my reticence to wearing any type of animal print. This one tempts me…!

    I’m not big on leopard (and not necessarily all things moleskine either), but that notebook might just be the loveliest thing… Definitely popping down to their shop next time I’m around (thanks for the tip Susie!)

    This is to much , i guess im just one of those people that chose otherwise but um, well i think just regular solid colours and stuff like that matching for siblings would be better besides thats kinda fruity ;)just my opinion
